Our history

autronica-chi-siamo-storia-sede-tavagnacco2020 is a year of great changes for Autronica. Thanks to significant company growth Autronica moves to Udine Nord, in the new and prestigious venue on via Nazionale in Tavagnacco, leaving its historical headquarters in Basaldella. In addition, two new programmes are launched: the GTA Pro workshop management software and the Atelio Aftermarket International spare parts catalogue. In June 2020, Infopro Digital Group goes public with the acquisition of HaynesPro, one of Europe’s leading providers of technical automotive data together with Infopro Digital Automotive. The merger of Haynes with Infopro Digital Automotive, of which Autronica is also the representative for the Italian market, brings IPDA to the top of the world market in professional automotive aftermarket information.

2020

autronica-chi-siamo-storia-autronica-infoprodigital-automotive-logoIn 2019, following the commercial expansion of the group and the evolution of its image at a European level, Autronica also changes its image and presents itself to the market under the new Infopro Digital Automotive logo, like all the other subsidiaries in the Automotive hub.

2019

Sales grew and so did the company to the point that in July 2016 it doubled its headquarters. Alongside the historic administrative headquarters, the new commercial and operational offices are located in via Adriatica 272, also in Basaldella di Campoformido.

2016

2015 saw the start of another important collaboration with the First Stop tyre network. November 2015 saw the release of the new RTA, a result of the merger of the mechanics and electronics manuals (formerly EAV), totally in colour, with a completely new chapter organisation and new graphic elements that make it easier and faster to read.

2015

In 2013 the company began working with the Euromaster Italia network to supply software for managing car services.

2013

autronica-chi-siamo-storia-autronica-multimedia-logoIn 2012, the project to revise the Autronica Multimedia database was completed, and thanks to the knowledge and experience accumulated over the years it became the company’s flagship product.

2012

In 2008 the Officina Atelier magazine was launched, now an informative web-magazine on the aftermarket world, and in 2010 the Equip-Garage website was launched, a search engine for equipment, chemicals and spare parts for garages.

2008

ETAI-sede-galleryIn 2006 Autronica was acquired by ETAI, today known as Infopro Digital Automotive, joining the Spanish and Tunisian subsidiaries. Also in 2006, the agreement to supply the customised spare parts catalogue to the PSA group was finalised.

2006

autronica-chi-siamo-storia-RTA-EAV2004 saw the first important contact with the French company ETAI (Automotive company of the Infopro Digital group, now Infopro Digital Automotive) which entrusted Autronica with the exclusive marketing in Italy of Rivista Tecnica dell’Automobile and Electronic Auto Volt, the two monographic manuals for car maintenance, and thus marked the company’s commercial turning point.

2004

Gradually the business specialised in technical publishing and in 1998 the first Autronica technical database for car repairers was created, initially on floppy disk and then on DVD. The business spread across Italy, becoming a reference point for technical automotive information.

1998

Autronica’s activity began with the organisation of specific training courses for mechanics. In 1994, the first product, AUTRONICA INFORM, was launched on the market, a collection of car breakdowns that had actually been found and solved, laying the foundations for future software.

1994

Autronica srl was founded in 1992 in Basaldella di Campoformido by three partners and friends who shared the desire and passion to provide services to car repairers in the area.
